LLCC Day 8

Well I survived an entire week + one whole day! Hurray! This morning when I weighed myself I had lost (drumroll please) 6.5 pounds!! I can hardly believe it! In one week!! 10 pounds difference from where I was 2 weeks ago. So, needless to say, I have newfound motivation to stick this out!

Because of the weight drop my daily allotment of calories also changed. I can now have 1150 a day, down from 1193. I walked twice and faster and longer today so I could have some extra calories to keep from feeling incredibly hungry.

Allotment: 1150

Breakfast: About 175 calories
1 cup cheerios
1/2 cup milk
3 strawberries

Lunch: About 300 calories
Chicken salsa cheese tortilla things

Dinner: About 380 calories
Chicken salsa cheese tortilla things, but 3 of them instead of 2 like lunch

Snacks: About 740 calories
yoplait light yogurt
1/2 Kiwi
graham crackers
string cheese
1 mini cookie from Mrs. Fields
2 s'mores but with 1/2 the chocolate (my new favorite nighttime treat IF I have the excess calories)

So, it's actually working. I'm feeling very good and thinking about starting a running regimen to perhaps prep for a 10K on Thanskgiving. But, I'm not making any promises on that one because it makes me very, very, VERY nervous.

Awesome work! I'm so jealous, but you definitely earned that weight loss! I'm hoping to gain some motivation from your successes. :)
